Look, I’m not sure how you feel about country music, but I fucking hate it. Often, if someone asks me what I like, I say everything except for country music and Aussie hip-hop. But The Maryettas, they’re different. Sure, they’re singing about cowboys, harmonica is extensively involved and they are from the Great North, but it doesn’t feel like these guys are about to get racist any time soon. They’re simply singing along in this forlorn, amateur tune, a little bit hopeless and very, very endearing. Oh yeah, and ‘Karaoke Cowboy’ fucking rules as a track. Git R Done!
